This mask is made in the the style of the NorthWest natives of the North American Continent, including and especially the Tlinget, Inuit, Salish, Kwakwaka'waka, Nuxsalk. I looked at lots of Totem poles and carvings for inspiration and this is the design I finally developed from my sketches. Special thanks to all the tribes involved, and any others I may have forgotten to mention.
If you have a small printer bed, scale down and make it a decorative ornament instead of a mask. When I made the large version, I learned a few things. It got stuffy inside, so I drilled holes for the air to pass thru. I added straps to the back so it sits like a headlamp with the T-shaped intersection of straps in the back held by a buckle. The tongue is a piece of craft fabric that hangs thru the mouth, and can be retracted.
[UPDATE, October 15, 2018] FACE MASK UPDATED! Use file number 048. Now ready for straps, and eye pieces sealed. If you have a 30x30x30 printer bed, you can just barely fit it on. It should be just large enough for an average adult head, with a little extra room to add padding. DO NOT use Simplify 3D. It will mess up the booleans. Use repetier host or Cura if possible.
0.2mm or whatever you prefer
If you're printing for a full size mask, choose file number 048. Keep the support material contact interface large: something like 0.5mm . This will make it easier to pick out from between the teeth.
This mask is designed to be thick and strong. It requires much plastic and much printing time. Make sure you have enough filament before you start!
DO NOT USE SIMPLIFY 3D! It will mess up the booleans. Repetier host or Cura are preferred.
If you're printing for small display or table ornament, choose file number 027 and scale down to whatever size you want.
Try your own color scheme. :)
I invite and encourage you to try whatever color scheme most appeals to you. But first, I recommend you spray a few coats of sandable filler/primer to get a smooth surface. If you want it really smooth, you can also sand the primer before you start painting.
